Which do you prefer and why: whittling with soap or whistling with wood?

My Daddy used to make me willow whistles out of branches of our weeping willow trees. He would cut off a piece about 6 inches long, trim the end just so, and score the bark and slide the end piece off, then he would trim out the inside to make a whistle. Fond memory. I was never any good at whittling soap, the knife would slip and I would end up with a headless duck.
